“President Donald Trump and congressional leaders are preparing Wednesday for a breakneck series of meetings aimed at ending a 19-day partial government shutdown.

Trump will meet with Senate Republicans for their party lunch at the Capitol on Wednesday afternoon, along with Vice President Mike Pence and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Then the president and the top Senate and House leaders in each party will huddle at the White House at 3 p.m., the third such bipartisan meeting in a week’s time.”
